Recipe Notes:

This is such a yummy bean burger recipe with so much goodness packed in, wholegrain, beans, veg, nuts and spices! definitely a good recipe to impress non-vegans and will keep everyone happy as its super tasty. 

  • The quinoa can be switched for any grain really whatever you have on hand. 
  • The breadcrumbs as well can probably be switched for any type of breadcrumb although I haven’t tried. 
  • You can add more or less of the breadcrumbs or grains if the beetroot makes the mix a little too sloppy to handle. 
  • If you’d like a crispier burger, you can lightly pan fry them after they’ve been cooked (so they hold their shape). 

I hope you LOVE the receipe and tag me in any of your recreations on insta @naturallyvegangina

(I also have a new youtube up where I eat only pink foods including a video of me making this burger)
